: Mike, go to a Sam"s store and look in the tool dept. They have a nice case
: full of all the air tools you will ever need except for a nail gun. Cost
: $54.00 if I remember right. I got one for Xmas and love it.
You should look VERY closely at the air flow requirements of the "tools" in
that $54 play set from Sam's Club!!
Find your receipt and return those *toys*
before it's too late!
BTW, I learned that the "hard way" about a year and a half ago.
I bought a Coleman compressor and that "bargain" tool set at Sam's, got it
home and immediately discovered that I should have left the whole kit and
caboodle in the truck.
The compressor could only produce 5.4 CFM at 90PSI -- the impact wrench in
that toy set required 11.5 CFM at 90PSI to produce a measly 200 ft lbs of
Small wonder it wouldn't turn a loose nut!
The other tools in that set were just as worthless!!
Really crappy work ratings at enormous CFM requirements!!!
I ended up with a PC oiler compressor that delivers 6.8 CFM at 90PSI and a
Ingersol Rand impact wrench that only needs 4.8CFM to produce 600 ft lbs of
reverse torque. (The IR wrench cost darn near as much as the original
Coleman compressor I returned.) Yes, I spent a lot more than I originally
planned, but I "got it back" by avoiding repair shop labor by the time I
finished the brake jobs on cars #1 and #2.
My other air tools now are almost all (carefully selected) from Harbor
Freight's "professional" line. They work.
